It was a really nice drive!
Flowers were picked and souvenirs were purchased.
The most eventful part of the drive was when we pulled in to see some caves. Unfortunately, there was noone around and the park was closed. And then, when we got into the truck to get back on the road, the truck wouldn't start. Uh oh........
After some investigation, Mr. Adams decided that the battery was shot. So waited for a few minutes hoping someone would stop by and offer to help...
We didn't have to wait very long....
This couple stopped and gave us a jump, and then they gave us directions to the nearest auto parts store. As with all of the folks we have encountered on this trip, they were very nice.
But Mr. Adams did wonder if their dentist's name was "Dr. Hammer."
At the Auto parts store we bought a new battery, and a few other supplies.
The employees at O'Riley's were very helpful.
This fellow even ran home to get his hot rod and bring it back, just so he could show it off to us. (By the way, he was not the first person we've met that did this!)
And this fellow offered us advice on which route to take....he even gave us his map!
So far we've found easy fixes for the few problems that we have encountered. Let's just hope we keep it that way!
After we wore out our welcome at the Auto Parts store we hit the road again. And to top off our great day - I got to see my first Armadillo!!!!!
Never mind that it was road kill.....how cool is that?!?!
R.I.P. little fella....
